Hi, I am working ono my thesis about CFD and Aeroacoustics of wind turbine with rotating blades. I got perfect results when I ran my simulation in steady-state condition for Curle and Proudman noise Models. For example I followed the first tutorial for aeroacoustics and the results were OK and I got convergence near to 10^-4 for residual plot. But, when I change the physics to unsteady, and change the motion to rotating, either using Reynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes or DES or LES, everything goes wrong and the residual plot rises to hige numbers up to 10^7!!!! I change the motion to stationary or rotation but nothing got better. What is your opinion and how can I solve this problem.

pressure corrections limited on 9 cells in STATIC
pressure corrections limited on 60083 cells in ROTATING
Temperature corrections limited on 327 cells in STATIC
Temperature corrections limited on 34752 cells in ROTATING
Minimum Temperature limited to 100 on 439 cells in ROTATING
Maximum Temperature limited to 5000 on 405 cells in ROTATING
Maximum Temperature limited to 5000 on 33 faces on Wind Turbine Rotor.Default
Temperature limited to maximum value 1270 times on model-part "ROTATING"
Breaking out of time step iteration.
Time solution is in an inconsistent state.

And here is the residual plot for first iterations.

How are you initializing the transient simulation? Is the flowfield static and your turbine suddenly is spinning at maximum RPM? That will be very difficult to converge, you need to ramp its speed or start your solution off from your steady-state solution.

you should certainly be starting your unsteady solve from a reasonably converged steady run - very easy to do.
also check your timestep - i suggest one that gives you about 1 degree of rotation per timestep.
